Campbell County Schools issued this press release in May:

Late this afternoon, Mr. Tim Nolan formally tendered his resignation from the Campbell County Board of Education, effectively immediately.  Per statute, the Campbell County Board of Education will forward his resignation to the Kentucky Commissioner of Education, Dr. Stephen Pruitt, who will be responsible for appointing a replacement at a later time.

Nolan's attorney's statement goes on to state, "Mr. Nolan is furthermore concerned about the effects that the outrageous charges are having on his family members, who are also dedicated public servants and professionals living and working in the Northern Kentucky region."

The statement also thanked the Campbell County community for "their outpouring of support."

Campbell County Police got an arrest warrant for Nolan on April 20.

According to Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear, the crimes occurred in August 2016.
